Dan is a local product of the wine county. He grew up in Sonoma County with his twin brother and two older brothers who are both wine makers. After graduating UC Berkeley with a finance degree Dan ventured into the world of investment banking, worked at an internet startup during the wild dot.com days and after world travels with his wife he returned home to the wine country to start a family and began his career in mortgages in 2001.
Dan is passionate about helping people and the community where he grew up. He enjoys applying his financial background to empower people to realize their dream homes and secure their financial futures. Investment opportunities with additional income from ADU’s, vacation rentals and rental units are his specialty.
After the mortgage meltdown of 2010 Dan pursued other passions, including real estate investment, selling solar at SolarCity/Tesla and as the executive director of Sonoma Valley United Soccer.
Dan returns to the mortgage industry with the wisdom of a seasoned loan officer excited to help people do what’s necessary to survive and even thrive in these uncertain times. He believes taking advantage of historic rates can lay the groundwork for a life full of possibilities.
“Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” -St. Francis of Assisi
Dan lives in Sonoma with his wife and two children Jackie (12) & Sean (7) along with a golden retriever named Finley. When he’s not helping in the real estate world he’s hiking Jack London state park, snow boarding in Tahoe or hitting the links with his brothers.
